Stone noted that we are currently having "a mental health crisis" on a "global level," with one in 10 people struggling, but emphasized that people have the power to help themselves.

"To try to say, it has to be our leaders, well, which leader do you think that’s going to be? It must start with the individual,” the actress explained. “You must stand strong, and when you blow it? OK, so what? That was two steps ago.”

“You have to get back up, get yourself together and help whoever you think you bumped around, and keep moving forward — and instant forgiveness. Instant forgiveness for yourself.”

Stone received a Peace Summit Award at the World Summit of the Nobel Peace Laureates in 2013 for "her activities that brought solidarity and new hope to the millions of people who have fought and are fighting against the tragedy of HIV/AIDS."

"Suddenly, I was like, ‘I’m in the right godd--- room.’ These are my people,” Stone tearfully recalled. “I would stand in the street with these people. I would risk my lives for these people. These people get me, I get them.”

“It took 35 years, but I’m in the right room, and I never told people here, in LA, that I even won. I didn’t tell anybody because I thought, ‘How can I tell people in the movie business that I won a Nobel prize?’"
